Jamie our server talked me into a delicious meal of hot prawns and salad Mags had a stunning Caesar salad and a beer! Best lunch around not cheap but worth the money as the service is excellent the... More

We stopped here because we liked the position on the quay and the appearance of the restaurant which was smart and pleasing. Service was friendly and fast, and the food was very good. One issue, our Crayfish special should have come with 3 sauces and a free glass of wine. Unfortunately the waiter forgot the sauces, and didn't point out... More

Thank you for you kind review. We are sorry that you did not receive the sauces with your meal, this is certainly not the type of experience we wish our guests to go through. Our crayfish festival has been a resounding success for many years and has resulted in an excellent reputation for us. We have taken the necessary remedial... More

My husband and I fancied steak and chips, and having perused their menu, we saw just what we wanted and booked a quiet corner table at OYO. The grey dull restaurant lacks charm and actually, doesn't look at all inviting, so we already started the evening with a little bit of trepidation! WRONG! Our waitress Filistus was fantastic, and surprised... More

We loved this restaurant in the Victoria & Alfred Hotel on the V & A Waterfront. We had their Crayfish special which was excellent and reasonably priced. There was an unusual blackout when we had our reservation, but we were served wine until the power came back on. However, our waitress Felistus was one of the reasons why we returned.... More

This nice, friendly harbor side restaurant specializes in seafood. The calamari appetizer was excellent and grilled crayfish, South African Lobster, was tasty. The busy port is a great people watching area and has a variety of cafes, bars and shops for your pleasure. A congenial place for lunch.

My boyfriend and I had the most amazing dinner at Oyo. The atmosphere is great, the waiters were extremely professional and the food was superb. BUT, the biggest contributing factor to our incredible experience was due to the Tawanda, the restaurant Manager. He is without a doubt one one of the best restaurant managers we have ever experienced. His attention... More

We had a great meal and received exceptional service from Felistus. The Karan fillet was probably the best steak we have ever had and we would recommend Hester's Malva pudding. Location, staff and the quality of the food could not be faulted and we would definitely return here again on any future trips to Cape Town.
